In collaboration with colleagues at the University and external partners including the Oral History Society, this series of events and exhibitions born out of our work with traditional archival and oral history sources exploring the issues of boundaries and diversity within the local context. A month long exhibition will be staged at the UEL Archives in Docklands and Stratford showcasing work from our Tate Lives projects in North Woolwich and Silvertown and the notions of what is meant by the "boundaries" within aboth the built environment and personal contexts.
